Yep, after 37 years the wiper switch has given up the ghost. So has the blower switch.
I found a blower switch at Rock Auto, but haven't had any luck finding a wiper switch.
Except for a NOS one for $150.00.
What a Face

Any help or suggestions?

Thanks, but that is column mounted. My switch is mounted in the dash to the left of the speedo, has a vertical slider next to a rectangular washer button.
I think I DID find one on Ebay, though. I hadn't checked it in a while. I may have to swap black Chevy knobs for the chrome Buick ones, no problem. Cool

Well I lost the bidding war on the NOS part at the very last second.
I was able to buy a good used part for about the same money from the same vendor.
Love/hate Ebay, but at least I got (I think) what I needed. Arrow Neutral Cool

Ebay has saved the day for me on a lot of stuff that is impossible to find now (Citation). Glad you got it!

I just picked one up at the local junk yard. It think it still works. I would take $15 for it. It has the light, and the wires are not cut to the connectors. The knob shaft twists, and slides left and right.

The part came, it looks like it has never been used.
Not in its original box. Rolling Eyes
Now it's in MY Box.
Fred, I think yours is different.

You are right. I checked the description, and the one I have uses the knob shaft pushed to the side with the light to actuate the washer. It also sits horizontally in the dash.
